Vessels - Makers of the Dead Travel Fast Signed Vinyl LP M Squared UBER RARE! The Makers of the Dead Travel Fast.Media - Near Mint cond. Superb & very rare 1st (& only) vinyl limited edition issue of.
By The Makers of the Dead Travel Fast. The Dead Travel Fast, were, and continue to be, one of the truly legendary bands, that emerged in the early 1980s in Sydney, Australia, in the post-punk/industrial music scene, that was flourishing at that time. To get some perspective of what was happening in Sydney, in the early'80s, there was no shortage of live & recorded entertainment, and some of the bands that were regularly performing at that time, included: SPK, Nada, Severed Heads, Fetus Productions, Systematics, and numerous other smaller outfits. On the rock side, there were bands like The Birthday Party, Radio Birdman, The Visitors, The Saints, Laughing Clowns, and Hunters & Collectors. There was nothing safe, or predictable, about any of these bands - especially when they were performing live on stage, in the early part of the 1980s.
Those who actually saw them, will know what it was like. It was a special time, and those who were part of it, and witnessed what went down - will certainly remember! I was privileged to be in the audience (on many occasions), and experience the complex sounds and song structures, that were an intrinsic part of a Dead Travel Fast show.The beautiful soundscapes, haunting melodies, and occasional vocals - were completely unique - there was nothing else like them, on the live music circuit, of that time - and there certainly has not been anything like them since. They were an anomaly, something really special, that comes along very rarely, leaves its mark, and then disappears. This is their 1st vinyl album, which is an absolute classic! It is in perfect condition, with the vinyl being near mint. The cover has some light wear and creasing, but I would still class it as excellent (although it does have the name of a previous owner, carefully written along the inner edge of the cover). It is almost impossible to find a copy of this album anymore. They have never signed a copy before, so this is the 1st time that a Dead Travel Fast - Vessels LP, is being offered, that has been signed! Check out my other items. I also have Current 93 VOD box set listed, including ultra rare signed Test Pressing of the VOD box.
I also have rarities by Throbbing Gristle, including Desertshore Installation set, & Desertshore white vinyl special edition, as well as a rare signed copy of England's Hidden Reverse, signed by all the key members of COIL, Current 93 & NWW. Be sure to add me to your favourites list.
